The story revolves around Tomoya Mizuhara, a 13-year-old boy who suddenly gains a big sister when his father remarries. 17-year-old Ichika is a little strange, and her affection for Tomoya is rather overwhelming, if not scary. On top of things, Ichika's friend Ruri is the ultimate sadist. Then there is Ichika's big-breasted quarter-Japanese friend Marina.
Ever finished something and thought "wait... what did I just watch again?" . Well that's precisely the feeling this title convey.
No real story to speak of. The 3 min runtime follows along the same vein of: Ichika obsesses over Tomoya, Tomoya is slightly weirded out, but he grows to like her ... rinse and repeat. I kid you not, that's it.. nothing more, nothing less. It's something that leaves no impact, as it is quickly forgotten moments after completion.
No attention to detail. Everything feels like it was just copied and pasted from the countless of other generic school romps. The character design also lack originality. No sense of depth, texture, cinematics or anything that makes a decent anime experience.
There's virtually none to speak of. Just your generic "fluffy" sounds. The voice actors were fine, none leaving an impact however.
They're all archetypes. With that being said you've seen this one note cast countless of times.
Tomoya: the timid guy
Ichika: obsessive stalker girl
Kouki: the "i'm to good for you" guy
and the rest follow this pattern, either existing for the sole purpose of being a comedic gag or just filing in a archetypal role.
It's hard to enjoy something that you forget within the span of time it took to finish write this review. If you've seen enough of these slice of life/school setting anime then this won't bring anything new to the table.
I can't say this is a waste of time seeing that it's only slightly longer than your standard 25min episode runtime. If you have nothing else to do and have 30mins to kill then by all means knock this one out. read more
I know Onee-chan ga Kita hasn't finished airing yet, but this review will be on my current thoughts and analysis.
This anime falls into a generic genre of an incestial love between step-siblings, is what I was thinking before i started to watch it. I think the main reason I actually decided to start it was because I was scanning CR for something interesting. Well, to sum it up, this anime is special in a way. The episodes are 3 or so minutes long and the art style is different. It basically took something like OniAi (Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankeinai yo ne!) took the main flags, and removed basically everything else. Now you're left with the romantic turning points, the funny parts, and a little bit of character development.
-From here on there will be spoilers up until episode 7 as I have only seen up to episode 7-
Tomoya is a 13yo boy in middle school. He's friends with a girl named Fujisaki Mina and a pervert-ish guy named Hanazono Mitsuru. His dad was single until he remarried, giving him a 17yo, brocon sister named Ichika, who tries her hardest to get Tomoya to fall in love with her. Her friends are somewhat normal, nothing special. Meanwhile at school, Mitsuru likes to bring up the fact he's jealous to no end and wants his own possessive sister etc. Mine on the other hand, used to be bullied when she was younger. She thought it was smartest to make herself cute so guys wouldn't bully her. That's how she's trying to live, but girls are always neglecting her. She's also the devil at times, kinda. By having a short temper sometimes she'd snap and guys'd run way, but Tomoya has a crush on her, (or so I'm lead on to think due to blatancy) and gives her patience. Mina slowly starts to open up to Tomoya, and that's all it's progressed so far.
Kinda generic and there's no real reason why his step sisters a brocon or in such deep love.
It's got a cool painting type feeling to it. Its unusual, but nice. It strangely fits the anime very well.
I was watching it on CrunchyRoll and the quality was stellar, (to be expected from CR) but they didn't use any royal free sound effects and the music was subtly and fit nicely.
I already explained the backstory in the Plot part, so I'll give a brief summary on the main characters traits.
Tomoya: He's timid and a little bit shy.
Ichika: She's quiet, determined, thoughtful, and creepily stalker-like at times.
Mitsuru: He's an average guy. Nothing more really has to be said.
Mina: she's a short tempered, narrow minded tsundere in a way. She always has a Facade up, and usually finds everyone annoying.
Onee-chan ga kita hasn't finished airing and's still only half way to the finish or so, but is an enjoyable anime if you've got a little spare time.

Honestly, this anime was pretty funny. This isn't the type of anime that's serious, and all that. But if you're looking for an anime that's funny and short, and crazy i'd definitely reccomend this anime to you. If you're looking for a more serious anime, i'd definitely not reccomend you this one. But you should definitely check this anime out.
Yes, despite the 3 minute episodes and only having 12 episodes, the story actually somewhat stays on track, it's not too good, but it's pretty funny.
It's a bit weird, but unique and enjoyable.
The opening and ending was cute, nothing wrong about it.
Yes, despite the episode length it actually did he some character development.
Overall: 6, if I could i'd probably put it as a 6.5 :)
ALERT: If you're planning on watching this anime and see my score as a 6, don't stop planning. Because a 6 for me is actually pretty good.read more
For those wanting a quickie review I'll Keep this short and sweat for you guys.
If you are wanting a nicely styled, funny Anime, with a hilarious bro-con Sister, that you can blast through really quick while enjoying regular laughs then Onee-Chan ga Kita is perfect for you.
For those wanting a bit more in depth, here you go:-
Although i'm not a huge fan of incestuous relationships, this anime does it right by not forcing it in your face. It's kept simple and sweet. It reminded me of a short, wackier, yet less perverted version of Kiss X Sis.
The art style is different from your conventional anime's, but still enjoyable none the less. Another reviewer mentioned it suits the anime well, and i have to agree, that difference in style only highlights how strange Mizuhara is (in a good way)
Nothing spectacular, but was enjoyable and fitted nicely with the anime
Although all the characters have their own positive and negative aspects, Mizuhara MAKES this anime, she is a riot, she never failed to make me smile and laugh. She gives this anime it's feel. She alone makes this anime a 10/10 for characters.
I came into this anime not expecting much due to the 3 minute episode length. But after blasting through all episodes in 1 sitting i was left yearning for more. It made me laugh on a regular basis without being just another stupid anime with some laughs. It still had some lovely moments of that Sisterly love. As i mentioned at the start i recommend this anime to anyone who wants a quick light hearted funny anime. And i especially recommend it to anyone who was a fan of Kiss X Sis. read more
